I worked at Facebook as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

The culture is pretty awesome and has staying power. The intern program is amazing and everyone is actually happy that the interns are there.

Cons

Sometimes things can get "hacky" because the company is so small and everyone has so much on their plate, i.e. working code speaks louder than words/design. As a fulltime employee you will ocasionally have to put in merciless overtime.

    I have been working at Facebook full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There's something really special about the Facebook culture. Employees are passionate about the work and projects. They are some of the smartest and dedicated I've worked with, and also a lot of fun to work with (seriously). Everyone is focused on the mission of the company, which is awesome. Excellent benefits and employee perks - onsite healthcare, chiropractor, acupuncture, gym and many others I haven't tried out yet. Another huge bonus for me is the support I have here as a woman in the tech community, it's pretty amazing.

    Cons

    The only downside I have experienced is the office location, nothing with the company itself. It's out of the way and nothing around the campus.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up. I'm impressed with the level trust, support and autonomy management provides employees to run with an idea and own a project.
